Tightrope Stepladder is a new challenge devised to test the skill and daring of the most skillful and the most foolhardy of all tightrope walkers.

It consists of a series of parallel tightropes that span a gap, but each rope is raised slightly higher than the preceeding one to form an ascending array.

This means that the walker starts off a low level but must step across to the next parallel wire/rope after they have travelled a few steps forward.

Each step brings them unto a rope placed at a slightly higher level than the previous one. After another few steps, they move across to the next rope and continue in this manner until they have traversed the entire gap, arriving at the other side on the highest of the ropes.

Juggling or fire eating while negotiating the Tightrope Stepladder wins extra kudos. (and probably an even swifter descent under the full effect of gravity)
